  1. Yeah, i would try this first. It's how I set mine up. I don't see why it would make a difference, at least what you are seeing, but worth a shot. I don't use it a lot when i'm actually hitting balls, but i did test it against a flightscope when i first got it and it was really close, not exact but pretty consistent. Let us know what you find when you try it again. Curious if it keeps changing when you go from hitting a ball to just swinging when it's in the correct position.
  2. I've been wanting to try a pair of shoes like this, just ordered.

    Which is better?

    Lot of good options but I chose drive. When I’m driving it well I’m usually playing well.
  4. Yeah i would assume most are the same. I play at a course where there is a big uphill approach shot and they have one of those crazy tall flagsticks so you can see it from the approach area. I know it's a lot heavier, not sure if the diameter is larger, i just assumed so but never really looked that closely. So i'm sure there are challenges to requiring conformity, but seems like they should.
  5. I’m sure this has been brought up but they will have to standardize flagsticks if they keep the rule right? It’s basically part of the hole now.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    👏 awesome! Seems like a lot of practicing the right way paying off. I enjoy following your progress, thanks for sharing.

    Those changes look great. The difference in that last pic is cool with your arms more extended. Keep it up.

    My Swing (Wanzo)

    Keeping the same feels for now in my practice sessions. Need to keep working slow. Wall drill to get the club up faster, feel a narrow backswing and wrist hinge. Just going to add to feel the right elbow stay more in front early through p2. Instead of right elbow getting behind my shirt seem so quickly. Keep feeling right elbow forward and shallowing coming down. More focus on backswing for now though.

    My Swing (Wanzo)

    Back on Evolvr and excited to work on my swing. The main priority right now is to shorten the arm swing in the backswing, shallow more coming down, and get more in sync to help eliminate my miss of a pull and improve contact. 1. feel a narrower backswing, feel more hinging so the club gets to parallel without the hands moving much 2. feel the right tricep stay on the rib-cage, but with soft arms. Upper body will turn less and keep elbows and hands from lifting at the top. 3. drill: setup a club distance away from a wall behind me and practice club hinging up and missing the wall

    I remembered this drill from the instruction portion of the site....this is a better description of what i was working on to help my backswing, kuchar takeaway drill.

    My Swing (Wanzo)

    I'm going to try to refresh this thread and get to practicing again. I tried to mostly just play this summer, not focus on too much technical in my swing. Mostly putting and short game when i did practice. Got my handicap down to 6.6. I went back over this thread and refreshed on some of the main ideas today. I'll upload a video after I've had a couple of practice sessions working on these feels again. One thing i found in my practice session today was it seems that hovering my club helps get me started with the things i need to work on, getting the clubhead up a little quicker going back and then shortening the back swing a bit. Still feels a little awkward, but i know that long term i really need to get this down to become a more consistent ball striker.
  13. Yeah. i agree that doesn't make any sense. Some people like to point to Dustin Johnson and say it looks like he doesn't care about results. He obviously cares, but his personality doesn't manifest itself in yelling or slamming clubs when he misses or hits a bad one. I think this topic is related to your previous comments about mental game being boiled down to enjoying pressure. More caring=More pressure. And if you don't enjoy that feeling....people, (me at times included) use the not caring philosophy or at least pretending not to care about results as a self defense mechanism and maybe a way to minimize pressure. Probably not the most effective long term way to get better when feeling pressure as just accepting it and learning to enjoy it.
  14. I think the line of thinking is saying that if you focus, or "care", about the results too much during your pre-shot, it can change your process or routine, even if just mentally, and negatively affect the outcome.
  15. Agree. I saw him a couple times at the masters and he whined about the greens or something after each shot/putt I saw. Kinda his style. Emotional.
